What are you doing now?

I am currently in the midst of completing my Bachelor’s in Psychology, after leaving America, I am now transferring my degree back to the UK. I work on a part-time basis as an Assistant for the Golf Professional at the local Golf Club. Behind the scenes, I am also studying my Yoga teacher training, which is online.

What is your favourite memory from Wellington?

While at Wellington, I was part of the 1st Golf Team, three of us travelled up to St. Andrews in 2016 to compete in the National School Finals. Even though I remember being partially ill during the trip it was an amazing experience. We successfully worked as a team, combatting the 40mph wind and very British weather conditions, we secured a 1st place finish together. As a golfer, we are known to be very individual, but this trip demonstrated a different side to the sport – as a team and representing the school.

Why did you want to be a part of the campaign? What made you want to get involved?

As a previous Prince Albert Scholar, I was intrigued. It presented an opportunity for me to essentially give back to the programme that gave me so much. I think back on the opportunities that Wellington provided me with, and I am so grateful for everything that they did.

I would not be who I am without Wellington and I would wish this opportunity to be available to everyone who deserves it; it is honestly the experience of a lifetime.

A fun fact about yourself?

I love a Barbour wax jacket and my Wellies.
